The Miracle of the Five Loaves and Two fishes


Today’s Gospel was on the Miracle of the Five loaves and Two fishes.

The Gospel of John reports that five small barley loaves and two small fish supplied by a boy were used by  Eisa(Jesus) to feed a multitude.
According to the Gospels, when Eisa(Jesus) heard that John the Baptist had been killed, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place near Bethsaida.
The crowds followed Eisa(Jesus) on foot from the towns. When Eisa(Jesus) landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick. As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.”
Eisa(Jesus) replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”
“We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.
“Bring them here to me,” he said.
Eisa(Jesus) directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.
He was an attendant at a gas station in a distant land, when he dreamt of making it big. The provision store across the road was aptly called “Trust”. He decided he would build his enterprise on the same “Trust”. This is what it was all about. He set sail for home, and in a humble way commenced operations to meet the basic necessities of his countrymen.
In the above miracle, the lord received the loaves & fishes, looked upto heaven, gave Thanks to his Father and sought his blessings. That is at the heart of the story, that the little boy brought his meager gifts to Eisa(Jesus), his five loaves and two fish, and look what mighty miracles God did with them.
He did it for others, changed the way his shareholders got involved and this caused his enterprise to grow. When others tried to reap their Millions by seeking their pound in the services they offered, he offered his service virtually for FREE. This caused a Revolution of sorts. From Yarn to Fabric to Oil to Defence he was there in all. And like the miracle of  5 loaves and 2 fishes that fed 5000, today his Empire feeds a Million.
And God wants to do the same with us; that we bring  our meager and ordinary talents and gifts, we bring the simplicity of who we are to God, and look what mighty miracles God can do with our little lives even today, if we are to do it in the service of others.
